Afternoon Book Club: The Tubman Train by Doug Peterson

April 19 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Free

Born into slavery, young Harriet Tubman knew only hard work and hunger. Escape seemed impossible–certainly dangerous. Yet Harriet did escape North, by the secret route called the Underground Railroad. Harriet didn’t forget her people. Again and again she risked her life to lead them on the same secret, dangerous journey.

The Tubman Train is the first novel to explore the complicated relationship between Harriet and her brothers, as she faced obstacle after obstacle in bringing them to freedom. It also explores the deep faith of Harriet Tubman and the excruciating decision that every slave faced—whether to put it all on the line and run North.

Location:  A Private home. Contact Lavonne Swanson (In the UUCOD Directory) for the host and address.
